The Australian National University (ANU) hosted ‘Celebrate Sustainability Day’ on 23 February 2012 and Canberra Clean Energy Connection (CCEC) were there to spread the word about our community renewable energy projects in Canberra!
Amanda Snashall, Anne Clarke and Barbara Burns from SEE-Change enjoyed the sun, music and company of the community at ANU’s Union Court from 10am-2pm and let attendees know all about Canberra Clean Energy and SEE-Change’s other initiatives for sustainability.
People were keen to know more about Canberra Clean Energy Connection and its upcoming projects, including our Community Solar Project – many attendees signed up to the mailing list and took copies of our promotional flyer.
We also had the opportunity to discuss the three projects that we currently have under development with an aim to make Canberra the solar capital of Australia – one roof-top at a time. These included:
1) Community Solar Project: not-for-profit community organisations installing PV on their rooftops via community donations,
2) Solar Bulk Buy Initiative: for individuals in the community who want to install PV on their rooftops for the best price, and
3) Community Solar Farm Project: the prospect for a large scale, community solar farm in the ACT owned and operated by the local community.
All three projects received high levels of interest and those that attended the event provided us with valuable feedback. We look forward to talking more with Canberrans over the coming months about these projects and what they want to see happen in their city.
